Roon 2.0 Build 1180 and ARC Build 104 is Live!

Hello Everyone,

As we prepare to release the new content sources feature (Wikipedia) we’ve made a few last-minute changes to address problems that popped up in both Roon and ARC. Please take a moment to see if there are any glaring issues, especially if you reported a problem in past builds.

We’re all extremely excited to get this feature out to all Roon users, but want to be sure that everyone has a positive experience. Please don’t hesitate to let us know if you run into any problems.

If you have been testing CarPlay then please be on the lookout for the proper reporting of failures and error states on the vehicle’s screen. This is an important change which, along with improvements in image loading, will greatly improve the CarPlay user experience.

Thank you for your continued support,
The Team at Roon Labs
